The West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group invite you to attend a special event called Everyone Counts, where they will be sharing their vision and seeking your views on a pioneering approach to experience led commissioning.
The event offers partners, stakeholders, patients and public the opportunity to get involved in the co-design of the local health services they commission. Your challenge and ideas are fundamentally important in helping them to decide how to develop community led approaches to commissioning. More »
The event is being held on: Thursday 27 March 2014, 9.00am to 4.30pm at Burleigh Court, Loughborough University, LE11 3TD
The event is an opportunity for you to share your views and experiences of local health and care services and to make suggestions on how future services could be developed. This will include all services such as the ones you receive from your GP practice, hospitals, community staff, mental health services and others. The event will bring together a range of knowledgeable speakers, but most importantly, workshops that will provide plenty of time for us to listen to you.
They will be providing bacon and egg butties on arrival in the morning, then a buffet lunch, as well as tea and coffee.
Places will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. To book your place please visit the Everyone Counts web page at: www.westleicestershireccg.nhs.uk/page/everyone-counts , by email at: email@example.com or call Helen Cullinan on 01509 567 796. » Less
The people of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland will have the opportunity to see how decisions affecting local hospital services are made in a series of public board meetings.
The first takes place on 27 March 2014 at the Voluntary Action LeicesterShire on Newarke Street in the city centre.
Karl Mayes, Patient and Public Involvement Manager at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust said: “By holding our monthly Trust Board meetings away from the hospital, we hope the meetings will be accessible to the people that use our services. It will be a good opportunity to see our senior team in action.” More »
The Board meeting starts at 12.30pm and will finish around 4.30pm.
If you are interested in attending please contact Karl Mayes, patient and public involvement manager, on 0116 258 8685 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

FIT FOR THE FUTURE
Improving Community Health Services for Patients in Ashby
You are invited to have your say on proposals to make Ashby community health services fit for the future. From Thursday 6 February 2014 the West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are asking people to pick one of two options and provide their comments on the future of the community health services provided from Ashby and District Hospital.
Community health services are about non-emergency, non-critical care, including those delivered in hospital and people’s homes. More »
The consultation is being run by the CCG, which plans and purchases local healthcare, and Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT), which provides the community health services in the county.
Details about the need for changes can be viewed here
This consultation is not about making cuts and saving money. It is about providing the right care, in the right place, when people need it, while making sure the money available does all of those things as effectively as possible.
HAVE YOUR SAY
CCG would like you to look at the consultation document , which tells you about current services and how they are used, and asks you to choose between two options for the future and to add your own comments.
For printed copies of the consultation document and questionnaire, with a Freepost reply address, please call our Engagement Team on 0116 295 4183 or email email@example.com.
Public consultation events are being held to discuss the issues and options, hear what others are saying, and to have your own say:
5 March 2014, 2.30pm – 4pm, The Royal Hotel, Station Road, Ashby-De-La-Zouch, Leicestershire, LE65 2GP (registration and refreshments from 2pm)
